Why we’re working together
Every child deserves the right to a safe childhood. Unfortunately, today millions of children are regularly exposed to harm – they go to work instead of school, or become child brides, or are exposed to danger in their communities.
Unicef and DLA Piper, the Global Law firm, are working together to protect children so that every child can grow up safe from violence, exploitation, and abuse.
Child protection is a vital, yet often underfunded, area of Unicef’s work; it is complex and requires long-term support to create systemic change. Thanks to continuing financial support from DLA Piper, Unicef is able to keep working towards ensuring that every child’s rights are protected.
